Extended term for filing tax declarations on income from individual activity
5 Dec 2014
Article 5(1) of Regulation (EC) No 261/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 February 2004 establishing common rules on compensation and assistance to passengers in the event of denied boarding and of cancellation or long delay of flights, and repealing Regulation (EEC) No 295/91 (OJ 2004 L 46, p. 1) (“Regulation”), air carriers are required to pay passengers compensation in the event of the cancellation or delay of a flight for more than three hours. If the air carrier can prove that the cancellation or the delay was caused by extraordinary circumstances which could not have been avoided even if all reasonable measures had been taken, such air carrier is relieved of that the aforementioned obligation to pay the compensation.
In Case C-394/14 the European Court of Justice has assessed whether a collision between an aircraft and a set of mobile boarding stairs must be regarded as “extraordinary circumstances” under the Regulation.
